Last week, we were able to share the process of Passive House construction with City College of New York students. The site visit was a rare hands-on learning opportunity for the "Low Energy Buildings/High-Performance Architecture" class, taught by Alan Barlis of Barlis Wedlick Architects and adjunct lecturer Ben Leer of 475.
The class of both undergraduate and graduate students toured our under-construction Colonnade Row Revival Passive House. Site visits such as this are important to understanding the real-world application of principles learned in the classroom. The future of building meets future designers!
